Covington represents and advises global companies facing product safety issues and recalls, and related internal and governmental investigations, and federal and state enforcement actions. We have achieved successful results for our clients before federal and state agencies that enforce consumer product safety laws, including but not limited to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and equivalent international regulators around the world. We develop and implement reporting and corrective action strategies that maintain and preserve product brand equity. We also advise clients on product hazard assessments and safety compliance programs, and developing voluntary and mandatory safety standards development.

Industry representations include:

  • Automotive and component parts
  • Aviation
  • Chemicals
  • Electronics
  • Household and industrial cleaning products
  • Personal care
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Toys and apparel

High-stakes product safety investigations and recalls often include ripple effects such as:

  • Crisis management
  • Product liability
  • Class actions
  • Commercial disputes
  • Government enforcement actions
  • Harm to brand
  • Global regulatory scrutiny
  • Internal and congressional investigations
  • Federal and state consumer fraud litigation

Covington's multidisciplinary and rapid-response consumer product safety team combines regulatory, litigation, corporate, and government relations experience to successfully handle each of these areas of potential exposure for clients. By pursuing consumer product coverage litigation on behalf of clients confronting product safety recalls, we have also recovered substantial amounts from insurers to cover the costs of product safety recalls and related legal actions.
